that krisie gave so phenomenal, talking about how obama was demoralizing the economy, he was tough as nails against odama. he was just doing his job here it seems to me, he knows get what he's saying on the six-month anniversary is i want everybody to know i'd do it again if i had to do it over again. >> in this specific incident of this national disaster, i understand why he did what he did. i can tell you on the whole, president obama has not united this unk. remember when he said, we're not red states, we're not blue states. we're the united states t. president hasn't acted like that by and large. did he come to the aid and do in sandy, did that tie him up in a bad way for mit t romney? i think so. looking back on it, i think chris christie will say, yeah, i did what i did. i'm in the ashamed of it. >> do you think republican republican is always attacking, attacking rich people, oil and gas companies. we will get him back later in the show. she back attacking health insurance companies and the rest. do you think he's changed his tune? is he less divisive now? is this charm offensive, ma

, and their celebrity guests a little bit of a chance to kick back and laugh at each other's expense. president obama began the evening talking about the massive amounts of spent to unsuccessfully remove him from the white house. >> did you know that sheldon adelson spent $100 million of his own money last year on negative ads. you've got to really dislike me to spend that kind of money. i mean, that's opr money. you could buy an island and call it nobama for that kind of money. sheldon would have been better off offering me $100 million to drop out of the race! i probably wouldn't have taken it, but i would have thought about it. michelle would have taken it. you think i'm joking. >> president obama and this area's host conan o'brien also had a little bit of fun with the president's relationship towards members of congress and the media. >> of course, even after i've done all of this, some folks still don't think i spend enough time with congress. why don't you get a drink with mitch mcconnell, they ask. really? why don't you get a drink with mitch mcconnell?! >> i know the relationship between the
and sandy leveled the shot at the white house. governor christie was talking about president obama's response to the most devastating hurricane since tau treen gnaw. since katrina. >> the president has kept every proposition he made. that's what i was saying at the time. what i was saying was i was asked how is the president doing. i said he is doing a good job. he kept his word. since that time i have to say everything they ms proked they would do -- they promised they would do they have done. >> that continued overt support for the president has many conservatives scratching our heads saying i like the governor, but why does he continue to drool over the president for just doing his job? kimberly, governor christie, christie has an election coming up this year, next year, i believe. is this about that or is there a bigger picture? >> didn't you hear the jokes at the white house oh the big joke that christie was at a republican table and everyone started laughing? and you seem to always be such a big fan. now the tables have turned. >> i will get to that. >> you are confusing the
of culture around obama. i think we cannot not talk about that either. people want to be a part of that, whether they agree with his politics or disagree, this is a really popular president. he is the toast of the town in d.c. so to speak and people no matter what side of the aisle they're on they want to be part of the glitz and glamour that comes with this celebrity president. they want to take part of it whether they agree or not. >> cenk: we got to leave it there, but it comes with a price. that's the problem. if you cross the politicians then you're not going to get invited to the parties any more. they never cross the politicians. they never tell the truth that's why you don't trust the media. what are we doing about jobs. that's what people actually care about. since president obama has been re-elected, republicans and democrats, nothing about jobs. nothing. all right, when we come back we're talking about how to fix that system. how to get money out of politics and exactly to brian's point about what people are dissatisfied with, and what republicans and democrats agree on in th
that president obama has put himself in a bit of a box here on syria. kept talking for months about red lines and consequences and game changers but you clearly mindful of the bad entell against that led into the invasion of iraq and also clear he never wanted to get involved military in syria. is there a graceful way out for him? >> what he will do and is trying to do is insist on ironclad proof. you wonder if he doesn't want an affidavit signed by bashar assad himself saying yes indeed we did use serin gas on these people. appetizing prospect. a president who didn't want to intervene to stop the deaths of what is now 70,000 people i don't think is delegate to go on at least argue youabley incomplete evidence there has been the chemical weapons used. my sense is he didn't want to do anything and for now at least he isn't going to do anything. >> chris: a down side in terms of credibility in the middle east? >> not the kind of thing that is going to bother people going about their daily lives in america but around the world this kind of apparent weakness has a price. it emboldens enemies and
a book about these negotiations and did a lot of talking to the republicans. obama reached a deal and obama walked away from it. well, eric cantor, in his interview with ryan lizza of "the new yorker" a couple of months ago basically corrected him. he said, well, i talked to boehner and said it really wouldn't be a good idea to reach a deal now because then the issue evaporates. the president gets the credit, being re-elected. better to keep it alive and fight it out in the -- in the election. >> and it didn't pay off for them, did -- >> it didn't pay off at all. >> except they held the house but it didn't pay off for them in the senate. he lost twathe sat didn't pay off for him in winning the presidency? >> it was a -- call it a riverboat gamble, i suppose you could say. because what cantor said in that interview was -- if we win it all, then we don't have to compromise. they didn't. but the reaction wasn't, all right, now we have to compromise. instead it was, we're still not going to compromise. >> you've said you have some hope for the senate. there is some seeming to have to
victims. >> and steve a lot of people have been talking about the tremendous coordinated government response. governor christie said he thought obama kept his word on that. you are doing this through private donations and private community service. do you think this is an example of hitting the right balance between the public and private response? >> well, we heard about the $50 billion that was going to make it out to the people in the community that the president signed a bill for the relief. it is good to hear about it but better to see it. a lot of our people aren't getting to see that money because the bureaucracy is causing problems for people to get the end result of getting money in their hand to rebuild. >> and you mentioned that some 90% of your members were personally hit by superstorm sandy. out of that you came together to provide relief to your whole community. how has that process of being involved yourself in the relief effort helped with your own sort of personal recovery? >> well, we are called resilient because we have been through so much. we are very close knit
because of -- when you talk about obama care, it has been a big issue. has it changed your perspective, slowed anything down or does it matter? >> it slowed down the sales due to uncertainty in health care providers and what they can pay for and what happens with medicaid and medicare spending. to really deal with long-term demographics. >> you mentioned immigration, visa issue and engineers. >> yes. >> we have people -- companies constantly talk about that. are there really not enough engineers in this country? you can't find them efficiently? what is the real problem? >> there are not coming through the programs. >> you cannot find them for your specific issue? >> we can't find enough. it is very, very difficult. >> it's a great career. but you go back. like when the president said you have a drink with mitch mcconnell. come engineering, any of those things. i wonder how do we get people to realize what a great future they would have if they boit the bullet. how do we do it? or do we let all the foreigners. >> i've been told, and i could be wrong on this, there are two levels. there'
's what president obama is talking about. that's why we'll continue to work with congress to pursue the proposal the president put forward in his budget, a proposal that once again is fully paid for. today's report emphasizes that when it comes to early education, quality does matter. and that quality means more than just learning numbers and the abcs. it means insuring kids get the nutrition and preventive care they need to stay healthy, building social and emotional skills, engaging parents to headache -- to make sure they're nurturing their children's development. over the last four years, we've pursued an historic effort to raise the bar on quality in early education, and we've had unprecedented and incredible coordination and collaboration with the department of education. that includes the race to the top early learning challenge, and it also includes a range of efforts in the head start program including sharing best practices on training and curriculum and making sure that funding competition goes to the strongest centers. so as in this report -- as this report shows, we hav
and obama want to talk about the cooperation they are doing and appear to want to be talking positively about that. we also heard from an aide from putin in moscow saying quite simply the continuation of cooperation will continue. severe obvious efforts for cooperation here on the surface. combined with some strange back chatter we're hearing from, you know, on the hill, et cetera, about there not really having been as much information coming from the russians as they would have liked, but looking around, we have the russians repeatedly warning the americans well before tsarnaev came on the radar after boston and further information going from the russians to americans about potential lipgs between the mother and sons discussing jihad over the telephone. so there seems to be a chain of information. you don't quite know it's actions of russians in dagestan over the weekend and raid and continuous pass of information feeds together. there certainly seems to be adequate exchange of information right now. wolf, the presidents are talking in a cooperative fashion, wolf? >> that's important,
announcer ] yes, it is, business pro. yes, it is. go national. go like a pro. lou: talking with our next guest said that battle for power within obama administration sent american foreign policy into retreat making country look less engaged. joining us now, best selling author of brand-new book "the dispensable nation." vali nasr, welcome, we recommend your book. the need to stop leading militarily, you and i are having this conversation to day that president talks about game changers and red lines once again in syria and rhetori rhett continues. what is going on here? >> well president laid down a red line if syria uses chemical weapon then u.s. will get involved in the conflict, syria -- there severed tha there is ea has done so, if america does not do anything, it is about our credibility. our willingness to enforce our red line, we're not doing so that would impact our standing. lou: our standing is already i guess, suspect, given all developments. we have watched the obama drama, if you will with north korea recede from headlines with boston bombing, we have now watching a president
've been listening live to michelle obama at the white house talking about a program that involves public private partnerships to allow service members to earn certifications in information technology or nursing before the -- before they leave the military so when they do leave the military they will be able to find good- paying jobs and support their families and themselves. >>> we're learning two u.s. service members killed in a plane crash in afghanistan were based in northern california. the pentagon says captain reed nikusha of hawaii and sergeant dixon of rancho cordova died in afghanistan when the plane crashed. the two men were stationed at beale airport base -- beale air force base. >>> this morning ten syrian sailors are missing after two cargo ships collided in greece. helicopters are being used to search for survivors because one of the ships sank. >>> congress has set aside almost $500,000 toker new tanks despite the -- for new tanks despite the fact that the army doesn't want it. upgrades to the abrams tank are not necessary and he would rather the money be spent on other pr
a little extra support in other places. 71% of the hispanic vote. 71%. 73% voted for president obama. but the black vote was spectacular. he got 93% of the black vote. talk about a consensus, that is a consensus. the key was the black voter turnout. making just about 12% of the eligible voters in the country. they turned up 13% of the total votes from last year. for the first time ever, voters turn out at a higher rate than white voters overall last year. in fact, if they turned out at the same rate as they did back in 2004, governor romney would have actually won the election. it's not clear that the democratic party can repeat last year's performance. but one thing is clear. everything the republican party did was inadequate. they certainly demonstrated that the republican party has a lot of thinking to do. they better find some better thinkers if they are going to be competitive in the next. the president and his transportation secretary. apparently not a requisite for the job. the dramatic new report from the epa signals a dramatic shift in the debate of refracting. john roberts
indicates the syrians may have used nerve gas against their people. that's president obama has line.in the past would the white house says right now there is not enough evidence. >> there is much more to be done to verify conclusively that the red line that the president has talked about has been crossed. >> shepard: still, the pentagon does have options in case the president decides it's time to take action. jennifer griffin with the news live at the pentagon tonight. explain the possible plans for using force, jen. >> well, both the white house and the pentagon, shep, appear to be buying time. >> we are continuing to assess what happened. i think we should wait to get the facts. before we make any judgments on what action, if any, should be taken and what kind of action. >> a no-fly zone would encounter highly sophisticated russian built aircraft system manned by russian troops and bombing chemical weapon sites might create a cloud that could my grate over jordan, israel and lebanon there are approximately 13 chemical weapons facilities with 40 additional mobile chemical weapon si
fundraiser saying it seems like nothing is enough to make president obama reconsider unyielding support for planned parenthood. joining me now radio talk show host thank you. you have written about this case and talked a lot about it. you recently wrote about the media coverage. you have some organizations who tried to put the media in the box saying they are ignoring the trial as a bias. what is your take here? >> i don't see it. the trial is now in its seventh week and took until about mid stream until the national media started to kick in. what i think is significant is if there was ignorance of the case from the left there was equal ignorance of the case from the right. it is not as if conservative outlets were here in philadelphia and covering it to the exclusion of more liberal outlets. i think it is illogical to believe that the case is a poor reflection of legal abortion in america because allegedly and of course the jury is about to get the case, this man flouted the law. so he ignored whatever the law was. and frankly i think there is a differing argument which says if restric

are right, president obama signed it. but then he voted for it. he couldn't have signed it if he hadn't first voted for it. they watched the sequester kick in. we talked about this. they watched cuts to headstart. they didn't do anything about it. kids thrown out of headstart. so what? was their attitude. they watched cuts to food stamps. didn't do anything. cuts to meals on wheels and watched teachers and first responders and cops and fire fighters getting fired by many cities and counties. they didn't do anything. but cuts in the penta goodeon or military didn't do anything. but when air traffic controllers were furloughed and the very first day of the furlough there were flight delays of up to two hours in some major airports and members of congress knew they had to go home for the weekend for another 10-daybreak, which they don't deserve and they might have to wait around the airport for an hour, boy, they got their ass in gear. on thursday the senate in one day passed a bill carving out an exception to the sequester for the faa so they can put all ai
